Chacin to pitch for Venezuela in WBC

The SportsXchange

Colorado Rockies right hander Jhoulys Chacin will pitch for Venezuela in the World Baseball Classic, taking the place of Seattle Mariners Felix Hernandez.

Hernandez bowed out earlier this month.

"It's a dream of mine to do this," Chacin said. "My priority is the Rockies, but this is an opportunity I want to take advantage of."

The 25-year-old Chacin will be joined by teammates Carlos Gonzalez and catcher Ramon Hernandez, on the Venezuelan squad.
